In the short term, high interest rates are keeping investors safe and sound in deposit accounts and, until we see a peak in rates, shares are unlikely to sustain a broad-based upward movement. However, we think that we are now much nearer the end of this bear market than its beginning and that 1989 could be full of pleasant surprises.  IT Tables MoneyFile UT Tables Fun Index

On this basis, we recommend Fidelity South-East Asia.  More IT Tables MoneyFile UT Tables Fun Index

We do not expect any significant improvement in economic statistics until 1989. But then interest rates will start to fall, which, combined with the weight of institutional cash, will push the market higher.
